Ripton Conservation Commission seeks input on wetland changes

RIPTON — Information on a proposal to change the wetland designation of a meadow on the Ripton/Middlebury/Bristol town line will be presented at a Nov. 29 presentation in Ripton.
The Ripton Conservation Commission has petitioned for the reclassification of the 66-acre Beaver Meadows Wetland Complex from Class II to a Class I designation with a proposed 400-foot buffer. This wetland and buffer complex is within the boundaries of the U.S. Forest Service land in the three towns indicated.
The conservation commission will explain its petition in an event at the Ripton Community House on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 7-9 p.m.
This is an opportunity for the public to see a presentation about the wetland, ask a few questions, and offer public comments.
The petition is currently on public notice. All application and supporting materials can be viewed online by going to the Vermont Wetlands homepage — dec.vermont.gov/watershed/wetlands — and searching the public notices; file number 2017-396.P. The public notice period ends on Dec. 11.
